Day 8, Summit Semester

Second day of class with Bauman today. In Christianity and Politics, we looked at the differences between the major political groups, including liberals, conservatives, historical pragmatists, and radicals. I had never seen it broken down so clearly and precisely before, and it was really enlightening to look at why I believe certain things and why I definitely don’t fall into other groups.

In Brit Lit we started looking at the worldview and culture of the Medieval period, because that understanding shapes the vast majority of the literature we will be discussing over the next three months.

In History of Christian Theology, we looked at evidence for the Resurrection and went on to the early church in Acts, discussing whether the information we are given about the earliest days of the Church is descriptive or normative for us today.
